Villa By The Castle’s Pool Spa And Lanai
Villa By The Castle has a great outdoor space, perfect for relaxing and soaking in the Florida sun!
Typically this is where you’ll spend most of your time, so we made sure to put a lot of attention to what was provided here.
The back of the house faces a green space with two large trees in the center. Sitting in the lanai or pool while looking out into the green space has a great feel.
The entire lanai and pool deck are enclosed in a pool enclosure, keeping out a lot of the pesky Florida critters and bugs.
We also added privacy bushes around the entire enclosure. The bushes add privacy when you’re in the pool as well as extra greener, which we liked. 🙂
The lanai has seating for 8 at the outdoor dining table, a ceiling fan and is a great place to sit under the shade.
The pool has just been refinished and we added cute little turtles to the bottom of the pool.
The pool was also converted to saline (a salt water system) which is much better for everyone’s health, especially the little ones.
It’s a south-west facing pool, you’ll get sun on the pool starting around 11am and have sun until about 7pm.
The pool is heated year round, and we usually set it around 88 degrees.
Unlike other Windsor Hills vacation rentals, here there is no charge extra for pool heat and you can set the pool temperature to whatever temperature you feel comfortable with.
The spa is an extension of the pool with an over flow feature that creates a small water fall from the spa into the pool.
The hot tub spa had 4 jets and can seat 4 – 6 people comfortably. The timer for the spa is on the wall on your right as you walk out of the sliding doors onto the pool deck.
Similar to the pool we don’t limit the heat on the pool/spa equipment so you can set the temperature to whatever you feel comfortable with, typically the temperature is set to 104 degrees.
The Lounge Chairs
The lounge chairs were recently replaced to higher-end chairs that have padding build into the chair.
There are 4 lounge chairs and two small tables where you can put your drink or snacks while you lounge.
There are a bunch of floaties, goggles and pool toys in the deck box to the right of the sliding doors when you walk onto the pool deck.
There’s also a poolside basket ball hoop which is always fun to play with the kids.
To make sure the little ones can only go into the pool when they are supposed to we’ve installed a new pool security fence.
In case you’re wondering, we do not have a door sensor on the sliding door.
We’ve had many guests ask about it in the past, not because they wanted it but because they did NOT want it.
They found it annoying, which we can understand and agree with. So we never installed one. We find the security fence to be the perfect way to not annoy everyone all while keeping the little ones safe.
You’ll have a 5 burner gas grill BBQ that you’ll be able to use during your stay.
Unlike most houses in Windsor Hills, we don’t charge any additional cost for the use of the barbecue.
In fact we also provide propane free of charge! 🙂
The BBQ to a new 5 burner grill, the picture still needs to be updated. 🙂
